Steal This Look: A Black-on-Black Staff Kitchen in San Francisco

October 23, 2018

San Francisco interior designer Nicole Hollis has a knack for black. Her projects around the Bay Area often have a contrasting black and white palette, accented with brass and silver. Hollis’s own design studio follows suit, with one of the more chic staff kitchens we’ve seen. Here we’ve pulled out the key elements of the design.
